In just two weeks, we moved from the Comcast takeover of NBC Universal, to the launch of The Daily, Rupert Murdoch’s $30 million experiment in iPad publishing, to AOL’s $315 million deal for The Huffington Post. Those are only three markers that we’re in a time of creation and consolidation, with players large and small betting that risks will lead to results. When events are moving this fast you need focus — and that’s what you’ll get at paidContent 2011: The Next Decade in Digital, March 3 at TheTimesCenter in New York.
We’re still finalizing the agenda but you can expect a full-day conference including Q&As with:
» Lauren Zalaznick, Chairman, Entertainment & Digital Networks/Integrated Media, NBC Universal (NSDQ: CMCSA), one of the leaders charged with remaking Comcast-run NBCU.
» Nick Denton, the founder of Gawker Media, who will be interviewed by Reuters’ blogger Felix Salmon, bringing their spirited online discussions to the stage.
» Dan Rose, VP, Partnerships & Platform Marketing for Facebook, and an Amazon (NSDQ: AMZN) alum who helped incubate the Kindle and is on the board of Borders.
Info-packed sessions featuring leading executives, including Greg Clayman, publisher of News Corp.’s The Daily; Deanna Brown, CEO, Federated Media; Randall Rothenberg, EVP, Chief Digital Officer, Time Inc.; (NYSE: TWX) Rob Grimshaw, MD, FT.com; Vivek Shah, CEO, Ziff Davis, Inc.; Jim Bankoff, CEO, SB Nation; Lisa Frazier, CEO, The Bay Area Citizen; Michael Walrath, founder, Right Media; Jon Brod, President, AOL (NYSE: AOL) Ventures & Co-Founder, Patch; Alex Kazim, CEO, Ongo — and stay tuned for more.
